Postdoctoral position in Applied mathematics and Statistics Ref: REF 2017-0027 Apply Mail a friend Share Share Tweet The Department of Mathematical Sciences pursues internationally successful research and an extensive education. Researchers in applied mathematics and statistics at the department are important co-operational partners in other disciplines as well as in industrial projects. Mathematics is fundamental to science and engineering and has an increasingly prominent part in other disciplines as well. Mathematics is also a subject in itself, and fundamental research is a necessary condition for future applications. The Department is part of both Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg and is situated in the middle of Campus Johanneberg. It is the largest mathematics department in the Nordic countries and has about 200 employees, with a number of research groups in mathematics and mathematical statistics which together provide a creative and cross-fertilizing setting. Information about the position The Division of Applied mathematics and Statistics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg invites applications for one two-year postdoctoral position starting August 1, 2017 or as agreed. Outstanding applications from all applied mathematical research areas including mathematical statistics will be considered. Precedence will however be given to those who have a research profile compatible with existing research areas at the division. You are encouraged to make an initial contact with a potential mentor at the division before applying and to indicate this person in your application. The current list of researchers at the division is available at http://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/math/organisation/applied-mathematics-and-statistics/Pages/Personnel.aspx .
